A fast food-obsessed dad consumed a staggering 120,000 calories during one month after taking on a challenge to eat a whopping 60 kebabs in just 30 DAYS.
Des Breakey, 34, embarked on the bizarre menu after “accidentally” eating 39 kebabs over the course of a month earlier this year and wondering how much further he could go.
Since November 1 he has eaten a chilli sauce-soaked kebab with salad and a naan for lunch and dinner almost everyday – and has only put on eight pounds while doing it.
Although that may sound like hell for some, it’s quite the opposite for Des who said the meal, renowned for being unhealthy, is his “favourite food in the world”.
Speaking after his final kebab of the month yesterday (Nov 30), he said: “You might think I’d be sick of them by now but I’m not at all.
“I absolutely love a kebab so this month has been great, I’ve enjoyed it. It’s all I’ve eaten and that’s fine by me.
“In terms of my health I feel surprisingly well, I’m a little bit chubbier than I was before but that’s to be expected isn’t it.
“All in all I’d say I’ve smashed it.”
Although it might be hard to believe Des said his very first meal of December, and his first since the November challenge, will be yet another kebab.
He said: “One of the places I go to has decided to name one of their kebabs after me so I’m going to go down in the morning and get one.
“I think I’ll be getting a chicken and lamb mixed shawarma – I’m quite looking forward to it actually.”
Since embarking on the challenge Des has tried food from more than a dozen different takeaways in and around Newton Heath in Manchester, where he lives.
The water company engineer has taken to a Facebook page called ‘Manchester Donner Connoisseurs’ in order to review them all and has generated a small following.
He said he likes to “mix the orders up” by not always opting for a lamb donner and sometimes having a chicken shawarma or something else on the kebab menu.
Des added: “I’ll always get it with a naan and a nice bit of salad as well as the hottest chilli sauce they have, that’s the best order.”
Miraculously, despite scoffing such an incredible amount of fast food Des, who’s in a relationship, has only put on eight pounds.
He said: “If you think about it the meals I have been having they’re not that different to a normal one, I’ve got meat, some carbs and some veg.
“Plus I have eaten so many kebabs now that I know the good places to go where they are made properly.”
Des has been eating kebabs since the age of six and one day hopes to open up his own place selling them, perhaps from a van.
He said: “It’s a bit of a dream of mine to one day actually make and sell kebabs.
“I know I’m not from the country where they originate but I think I’ve had enough by now to know what I’m talking about.”
Des has used his challenge to fundraise for Nerve Tumours UK – a charity close to his heart.
